Haitian Community Set To Protest Outside HOT 97 Over Racial Comments By DJ Cipha Sounds!

https://i0.wp.com/www.iacenter.org/haiti/ins072502b.jpg

A group of leaders from the Haitian community are calling for the head of Cipha Sounds.

Cipha Sounds has apologized for the comment he made about not having AIDs because he doesn’t sleep with Haitian women but the Haitian community has decided to boycott the radio station as well as holding a demonstration outside of the station today December 21st.

Haitian Fresh a cornerstone of the Haitian community was interviewed in regards to Cipha’s comments and threatened violence against him.

Hot 97 DJ Cipha Sounds apologizes for saying that he avoids HIV by not hooking up with Haitian women


Hot 97 morning personalities Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg may be known for their offensive humor, but looks like one joke may cost Cipha Sounds his job.

In an off collar joke last Friday (December 17), Cipha Sounds (who is of Puerto Rican decent) made the remark that he had not contracted the HIV virus due to “not dating Haitian women”.

“The reason I’m HIV negative is cause I don’t mess with Haitian girls.”

Outraged, the Haitian community struck back with phone calls, Tweets and Facebook posts slamming the DJ for his brazen and insensitive comment, which led to the DJ immediately apologizing for the remark.

“I made a stupid, tasteless joke that was a one-liner that was taken totally the wrong way,” Cipha said in an on-air apology. “I want to say sincerely that I apologize. I do nothing but rep for the Haitian people, but I said something stupid that I’m embarrassed about.”

Although Cipha Sounds apologized, Haitian community leaders are stating that it was not enough and are petitioning for the DJ to get fired.

Haitian Fresh Addresses Cipha Sounds For His Disrespectful Comment Towards Haitian Women!

Vodpod videos no longer available.



“Cipha Sounds, who was on the air for “The Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg Show” of Hot 97 and made a derogatory comment about Haitian women. This is what Cipha Sounds said, “The reason I’m HIV negative is cause I don’t mess with Haitian girls.” Which is purely false and NOT true!! The entire Haitian community including Haitian Fresh felt his apology was not sincere. Haitian Fresh who is the voice of the Haitian people felt his comment impacted and affected the whole Haitian community in a negative manner after fighting against racism, discrimination and social stigma.”

Is Wyclef “Yele” Charity Organization Short Changing The Haitian People?!?

JANUARY 14–The Haiti earthquake has already triggered hundreds of thousands of donations to musician Wyclef Jean’s charitable foundation, which expects to raise upwards of $1 million a day in the disaster’s wake. However, Internal Revenue Service records show the group has a lackluster history of accounting for its finances, and that the organization has paid the performer and his business partner at least $410,000 for rent, production services, and Jean’s appearance at a benefit concert. Though the Wyclef Jean Foundation, which does business as Yele Haiti Foundation, was incorporated 12 years ago–and has been active since that time–the group only first filed tax returns in August 2009. That month, the foundation provided the IRS with returns covering calendar years 2005, 2006, and 2007–the only periods for which it has publicly provided a glimpse at its financial affairs. In 2006, Jean’s charity reported contributions of $1 million, the bulk of which came from People magazine in exchange for the first photos of a pregnant Angelina Jolie (the actress reportedly directed that the publication’s payment go to Jean’s charity, not her personally). As seen on the following pages from the foundation’s 2006 tax return, the group paid $31,200 in rent to Platinum Sound, a Manhattan recording studio owned by Jean and Jerry Duplessis, who, like Jean, is a foundation board member. A $31,200 rent payment was also made in 2007 to Platinum Sound. The rent, tax returns assure, “is priced below market value.” The recording studio also was paid $100,000 in 2006 for the “musical performance services of Wyclef Jean at a benefit concert.” That six-figure payout, the tax return noted, “was substantially less than market value.” The return, of course, does not address why Jean needed to be paid to perform at his own charity’s fundraiser. But the largest 2006 payout–a whopping $250,000–went to Telemax, S.A., a for-profit Haiti company in which Jean and Duplessis were said to “own a controlling interest.” The money covered “pre-purchased…TV airtime and production services” that were part of the foundation’s “outreach efforts” in Haiti. No further description of these services was offered, though the return claimed that “the fees paid are below market” and that the use of Telemax was the “most efficient way of providing these services.” The group’s tax returns also report “consultant” payments totaling $300,000 between 2005-2007, while the 2006 return reported nearly $225,000 in “promotion and PR” costs. These expenses are not itemized further in the IRS returns.

R.I.P: ‘Jimmy O’ Haitian Hip Hop Artist Found Crushed To Death In Haiti..


CNN: Jimmy O, a well-known singer and songwriter in Haiti who also was active in hip-hop artist and philanthropist Wyclef Jean’s charity, is dead.

Jimmy O, 35, was crushed in a vehicle during the 7.0-magnitude earthquake, apparently while he was driving in downtown Port-au-Prince.

CNN was on the scene when his body was discovered Friday. A man examined the body and pulled from one of the victim’s pants pocket the artist’s passport. CNN saw the document, which verified the man was Jimmy O, whose legal name was Jean Jimmy Alexandre.

Jimmy O’s family and agent, who were on the scene, also verified his identity. “His loss will be tremendous in Haiti,” said the agent, Henry Robert Dominique.

Dominique said Jimmy O helped run Yele Haiti, a grass-roots charitable organization established by Jean in 2005. And as a musician, Jimmy O helped develop new talent and artists in the impoverished nation, Dominique said.

Jimmy O’s mother, wife and two of his three children wept at the scene. They were joined by a crowd that had gathered, also struck by emotion over the loss of Jimmy O.

Yele Haiti’s goal has been to restore pride and hope to the Haitian people through projects that will allow citizens to ultimately help themselves, such as the creation of scholarships, support for the arts, food distribution and emergency relief.

The organization served the poorest of the poor in Haiti, Dominique told CNN. In its first year, it provided scholarships to more than 3,600 children.

Within 72 hours of the earthquake, Jean had mobilized on social networking sites to raise money for relief aid.
